Secretary Of State Clinton Hospitalized With Blood Clot

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been admitted to a hospital with a blood clot following a concussion she sustained earlier this month.

Clinton became ill at the start of December with a stomach problem.

She fainted and struck her head, receiving a concussion for which she was treated.

Clinton spokesman Phillipe Reines said doctors detected the blood clot during an examination on December 30 to see how Clinton was recovering from her concussion.

Reines said Clinton would stay in the hospital for the next 48 hours and doctors would decide whether Clinton needs any further treatment.

There was no word on where the blood clot was located.
